The view of Zandvlei in the foreground, Princessvlei to the north east on the left, Rondevlei in the centre and Zeekoevlei the larger water body off centre. On the right hand side is the Strandfontein Waste Water Works. One can just make out the pans formed in a wagon wheel. Strandfontein is the 5th most important birding area in South Africa, for species and number counts.
Taken from the top of Muizenberg Mountain in the spring of 2004.

This is a view from the sea, looking north towards the back of Table Mountain and Table Bay in the background.
Zandvlei is the dark water body on the left. Prince George Drive (M5) with its junction at the Sunrise Circle, is in the centre. The water body on the right is Rondevlei a nearby sister Nature Reserve. The mouth of Zandvlei is open to the sea, indicating this is a winter photograph. Part of the Muizenberg beach is in the foreground.

This view of Zandvlei is looking south towards Simons Town in the distance.
Lakeside is on the right, notice the railway line and Main Road. The Marina da Gama and Park Island on the left, Muizenberg at the top and the Zandvlei Nature Reserve and the Nursery at the bottom.
Photograph was taken in 2000.
